Looking southeast across District property and the right-of-way of the intercepting sewer in the Ravenswood Manor neighborhood, June 27, 1929. Manor Avenue is on the right approaching the intersection with Giddings Street. This lot and the lot across the alley to the north are perhaps the only private properties acquired for the North Side Intercepting Sewer. In recent years, the lot is leased and maintained as LaPointe Park by the Ravenswood Manor Improvement Association. (MWRD photo 15760)
